One of My Personal Favorites!

Daria and Tom are all set for National Chocolates Day, courtesy of Quinn. Don't feel too bad for her, though. Between the calories and the zits, there's no way Quinn was going to go anywhere near any of that chocolate. Jane is probably off somewhere enjoying unauthorized chocolate, and Mrs. Johanssen is trying desperately to convince someone to sell her some.

Fanfic Update!
  • 128 Seconds with Jane Lane (My Annual Thanksgiving Fanfic Release - 2016!), by Brother Grimace (COMPLETE!): "(Jane Lane sits on the stairs in front of the main entrance of Legion Tower.)

  • The Appointment, by elainefr (part 4): "'Trent?' Helen's voice seemed to be coming from somewhere far away. (v/o) Focus and breathe, focus and- What the hell is that smell? ......ah, yes the puke. It smelled even worse than last night."

  • Daria Ravenclaw: No Country For Unpleasant Old Men, by Meester_Lee (part 2e): "One of the reasons many witches and wizards used charter services like Nightingale Aero Charters was because the customs agents at the airports they served abroad weren't nearly as alert or thorough as the ones at other air terminals used mainly by Muggles."

Are You Extracurricular?

Jodie's reliving one of Jimi Hendrix's iconic moments for the anniversary of the rock guitarist's birth on this day in 1942. For the real background on Hendrix, we turn the floor over to Stan, the guy from Fremont who once took him to the dentist. I'm sure that's completely true, just like all of his stories.

I Think Quinn's Going to be Put on Another Sabbatical

Quinn just made the terrible mistake of suggesting that instead of Black Friday, the Fashion Club should celebrate Buy Nothing Day. The suggestion might sound crazy coming from Quinn, but perhaps she's only referring to a loophole: if the girls can convince either their parents or their dates to buy everything for them, then it still counts!

Fanfic Update!
  • The Appointment, by elainefr (part 3): "'Where are you going?' Helen asked her daughter just as Daria thought that she had made her escape out the back door. 'To visit a friend,' Daria said with the intention of hurrying on out before her mother could detain her any further."

  • Burned Out, by Wrabbit75 (part 8): "One had to admit; despite the heart attack-inducing tone of Mr. DeMartino's voice, especially when lecturing to his students, His history class was certainly one of the more interesting."

  • Cynic and a Six-String, by fringeperson (part 41): "'Ms Morgendorffer, I want you to take over the teaching position for the Language Arts classes until Mr O'Neill can return to his post,' Ms Li informed Daria once she'd taken a seat."

  • Last of the Summer Whine, by Kristen Bealer (COMPLETE!): "Between Mildred's snoring and his eagerness to find out if his plan worked, Tom had a restless night and overslept the next morning. He got dressed and hurried downstairs to find out how badly everyone else had slept with no pillows."

  • Mack Mackenzie, Superstar (My Annual Thanksgiving Fanfic Release - 2016!), by Brother Grimace (COMPLETE!): "(It is nighttime, and Mack (his football uniform all in white with spangles and fringe) stands atop the bleachers next to the LHS football field as Daria - still in her trademark outfit - stands mid-field at the center of the fifty-yard line."

  • Misery Machine, by NightGoblyn (part 14): "The students were quickly split into teams and issued gear - rifles, vests, helmets, and a supply of paintballs. Each of the three team leaders led their teams through the woods to the spot where their flag was placed, and then took the few minutes left before the game started to address their troops."

  • Moonstruck, by NightGoblyn (part 5): "Almost an hour later, Daria was slumped down in a desk near the back of her English teacher's classroom struggling to stay awake as the man droned out one line of gibberish after another."

  • The Other Side of the Looking Glass (My Annual Thanksgiving Fanfic Release - 2016!), by Brother Grimace (COMPLETE!): "What's gone? The what is gone? Did I... do something? A deep and sudden feeling of foreboding began to well up from deep within Tffany Blum-Deckler's stomach as she looked around the area – a sensation worse than the worse case of nausea she had ever experienced, as she found herself outside the Tower, with no idea how she had gotten there..." (Part 2) (Part 3) (Part 4)

  • Rutting Season (My Annual Thanksgiving Fanfic Release - 2016!), by Brother Grimace (COMPLETE!): "God, just make it stop... Daria pulled a pillow over her head, and tried to focus past the thoughts, the words - the sensations - that seemed to flow through her head like water."

  • Second Chances, by Lady Evil (part 2): "'Mrs. Talbot, let me explain.' said Jesse as he followed the angry woman dripping with faintly pinkish vomit. 'You can explain it to CPS!' snapped Mrs. Talbot as she flung open the front door."

  • Thanksgiving, by dmsfanman (COMPLETE!): "Tom and Daria were just finishing putting dishes in the dishwasher and cleaning the last of the pots and pans when Tom asked, 'So how much embellishing did you do on that Thanksgiving story? I have kind of a tough time believing that Thanksgiving with your aunts and cousin was that awful!'"

  • We Are Compelled to Ask, What Is Wuv? (Crossovers Still Crossing Over), by Kristen Bealer (COMPLETE!): "'Daria, Quinn,' the bridesmaid was saying as she led the girls over to meet their escorts, 'this is Garrett. Garrett will be with Quinn.' Daria took in the groomsman's handsome face, confident attitude, and instantly lovestruck expression as he looked at her sister. 'Of course.'"

And This is a Very Nutty Blog!

Jake's trying to figure out exactly what kind of nut he's holding so that he can properly celebrate National Cashew Day. Don't worry, Jake! If you don't have any cashews, you can pick some up at It's a Nutty, Nutty, Nutty World.

On another note, today is the ninth anniversary of this very blog, the Daria Fandom Blog II. The Angst Guy began posting on this day in 2007, and it's continued with only occasional interruptions since then. Thanks, TAG!

"Television counts as a place."

Daria and Jane are observing World Television Day, although I'm not sure this is any different from any other day for them. I should point out that the holiday is actually about the role television plays in shaping and helping society, so Daria should also be sure to yell at the TV if there are any book burnings going on.

Today is also False Confession Day, so if you want to own up to murdering Kevin, go for it. Just be aware that half of Lawndale High has already beaten you to it.

Fanfic Update!
  • A J Alphas Up, by EntrancedCat (part 1): "Fifteen minutes were left in study hall as Daria sighed and closed her paperback book. She paused to stare at the title even as she attempted to shield it from any interested eyes, not that many other students at Lawndale High were interested in what a brain had to read."

  • Benjamin Morgendoffer, by Veleriphon (part 6): "Apparently over the weekend, a cafe in town was vandalized. Mr. O'Neill tried to get the class at least interested enough to vocalize something in response."

  • Cops And Robbers And Magic, by psychotol (parts 2 and 3): "'You didn't confiscate the cash?' asked the superintendent. 'Aside from the ethics of those powers, sir, she has successfully sued us before and would again,' replied Matilda, 'I have an idea though. I would like to work with the quartermaster on some of the CS sprays and Tasers, next time she steals any of these items, I want her to wish she hadn't.'" (Part 3)

  • Cynic and a Six-String, by fringeperson (part 40): "'Hey Daria, we got invitations to a five-year reunion at Camp Grizzly,' Quinn called excitedly as she hustled into the kitchen with the mail. 'What a shame, I'm busy that day,' Daria answered with flat sarcasm."

  • Last of the Summer Whine, by Kristen Bealer (part 2): "'So we're all set?' Elsie asked after she and Tom had gone over their plan for the sixth time. 'We're set,' he confirmed. "Operation Vacation Cancellation" is a go.'"

  • Lead Us Not into Tempation (Daria and the Gang Thread), by Roentgen (COMPLETE!): "'Ahhhh!' Daria stirred uncomfortably. It sounded like a scream, a scream from Quinn, a very unhappy one at that."

  • The Many Doctors - Chapter 27, by cfardell_Brenorenz29 (part 3): "'We need a backup in case they don't reach the auxiliary engines in time. Come on, think. Resources. What have we got,' the Doctor said. 'Doctor?' Felicia asked. 'What is it now?' 'Who had the most number ones, Elvis or the Beatles? Pre-download?'"

  • Misery Machine, by NightGoblyn (part 13): "The next few days passed quickly, and the girls found themselves lumped together in the back of a school bus on their way to Jim's Paintballing Jungle, a magical place hidden in a swathe of untended forest surrounded by the rolling farmlands to the southwest of Lawndale."

  • Momentum, by Princess-Pasta (part 3): "'Ten Ways Videogames Can Improve Your Sex Life (Really). Can you believe they publish this crap?' 'You're surprised?'"

  • Moonstruck, by NightGoblyn (part 4): "Sand crunched under her boots as she walked across a dull, barren plain. She folded her arms across her chest and tucked her hands into her armpits, huddled against the cold and solitude."

  • Return From The Other Side (My Annual Thanksgiving Fanfic Release - 2016!), by Brother Grimace (COMPLETE!): "'So. You're back.' 'Glad to see you, too, Richard. Haven't had anyone reminding me of the minutiae of adherence to all of the rules lately.'"

  • Thanksgiving, by dmsfanman (part 4): "Tom got up and started cutting and serving Jane's pumpkin pie. He topped each piece with whipped cream and served each piece to those at the table. As he sat down with his pie he turned to Daria and said, 'So, Daria, What about your memorable Thanksgiving?'"

  • That Guy (My Annual Thanksgiving Fanfic Release - 2016!), by Brother Grimace (COMPLETE!): "You know what I've always hated? Well, 'who' - that person who makes me feel as if I've thrown up a little in my mouth and like I need to take a dump because my abdomen is filling up with crap from not going for three days, both at once?"

  • Trouble in the Future (Chapter 1), by cfardell_Brenorenz29 (part 3): "Kristia went down to Bot Beta, the lowest floor. 'Landers to Pearson. There's a new development.' 'I have engaged one of the Marie Greeners. She's stopping me from gaining access to their vehicle!'"

  • Unnamed story (World's Shortest Crossover, Part XIV: The Crossover Awakens!), by Wraith (COMPLETE!): "'Intellectuals back then had good diction and higher voices.' Claire noted, and the others around the table just nodded. She continued, 'Frankly, she's just terse.'"

I Hope Jake Remembered to Check the Toilet Paper Before He Sat Down!

Daria's spending some quality time with Talking Toilet for World Toilet Day, but don't forget this dire warning: "What deadly new diseases can you pick up by sitting down? Toilet seat terror next, on Sick, Sad World!"

Today is also Ms. Barch's least favorite holiday ever, International Men's Day. That's probably appropriate for her, though, because it's also Have a Bad Day Day.

Hiking and Bread...What Could be Better?

Mr. DeMartino is leading the charge for Take A Hike Day, although you can feel free to use the door when you leave on your own hike. I'm hoping DeMartino won't be bringing his cigarettes along with him, because today is also The Great American Smokeout, so he should think about quitting. If nothing else, I'm sure Mr. O'Neill would frown on smoking in front of the campers.

If you decide you'd rather stay indoors today, then you could bake a loaf of bread for Homemade Bread Day. Yes, Helen, using a bread machine counts!

Fanfic Update!
  • Daria: Is this a reunion or a flashback?, by Clayton Overstreet (COMPLETE!): "They say you can't go home again; or do they just wish it? Daria and Jane stood outside the gym at their old high school. Daria wore a dark green blouse over a pair of jeans and sneakers. Jane was in a tight red dress that hugged her hips and a pair of stilettos. Inside music was blaring."

  • Last of the Summer Whine, by Kristen Bealer (part 1): "Tom watched as his father shut the trunk on their suitcases with a loud and final 'clunk.' But maybe it's not too late, he told himself. Out loud, he said, 'Spencer Prentiss's family is going to Disney World this summer.'"

  • Misery Machine, by NightGoblyn (part 12): "Andrea pushed open the outside door to her apartment building, making a note to not bother calling the office to tell them the lock was broken again. There was a small chance they'd fix it, which would be pretty inconvenient for the few days it lasted before somebody took a sledgehammer to it again."

  • Momentum, by Princess-Pasta (part 2): "Trent was wholly unprepared for his life to be completely uprooted in a matter of a few short days but he had no other choice but to pack up what little he owned and leave Maryland. He felt defeated...more so than usual that was."

  • Moonstruck, by NightGoblyn (part 3): "As it turned out, her interview to join the Mrs. Manson cult was the highlight of her day. The school day itself was half spent by the time they were released to go to class, causing her to miss her algebra class, English lit, and U.S. history."

  • Reclamation, by SacredDust (COMPLETE!): "Ashley Winters chipped away a little more stone from his latest sculpture. It was only half finished and he hadn't quite figured out what it was supposed to be. But as one of his more passionate teachers once told him, art was all in the process." (Part 10)

If You Just Buy a New Fridge Entirely, Recycle the Box!

Jake's observing Clean Out Your Refrigerator Day with gusto, unless he's just looking for more cheese to use against those dastardly squirrels. If you find anything in your fridge that's green and shouldn't be, today's the day to get rid of it.

Speaking of green, make sure you don't just throw away anything in your refrigerator that could be recycled. It's America Recycles Day, which I guess means that people in other countries can chuck stuff into landfills willy-nilly.

A Kind of Nice Holiday

The Fashion Club is starting to regret agreeing to participate in World Kindness Day, but those orphans aren't going to get ankle boots unless they step up! You can celebrate this day any way you'd like. Daria might read to seniors, Helen might defend Unicef from Eric's lawsuit, and Mr. DeMartino...might stop himself from strangling Kevin. Kindness abounds!

Fanfic Update!
  • Cops And Robbers And Magic, by psychotol (part 1): "'I didn't grass on you, I swear-' protested Sam Jester, the drug delivery cyclist as he squirmed in the grip of Bob Francis, the meathead holding the desert eagle against Sams face."

  • Cynic and a Six-String, by fringeperson (part 39): "Jane had been tasked with Keeping Daria Busy And Away From Casa Lane. Her plan of attack was to take Daria to Dega Street and then back to Chateau Morgendorffer to watch Sick Sad World in Daria's room."

  • In the Hall of the Crimson Queen (Hiding in Plain Sight (Alternate LLH, Plot Bunny to Kill)), by Roentgen (COMPLETE!): "Joey "Slave" Orr shivered at the top of a building on 23rd Street in Manhattan. It was 4 am in the morning. The club - 'Draconia's Den' - had been raided by riot police."

  • Misery Machine, by NightGoblyn (parts 10 and 11): "A week after the disastrous poster competition Daria found herself sitting alone in her history class, ignoring the teacher and reflecting back on the last few days." (Part 11)

  • Momentum, by Princess-Pasta (part 1): "Daria was tired. Maybe tired wasn't the right word, more like mentally fatigued. Schoolwork was constant and she found herself having little time to even breathe these days."

  • Moonstruck, by NightGoblyn (parts 1 and 2): "Daria staggered against the wind, her hair whipping around her face and impairing her vision. Lightning split the pearlescent sky above, and thunder crashed down on her like a physical force. She dropped to her knees, peering through the hazy air and trying to identify her surroundings." (Part 2)

  • One And The Same, by Princess-Pasta (part 7): "Middleton College wasn't anything impressive. It had the standard set-up of most traditional campuses, complete with large campus square and fountain. The place was small compared to the other universities in the area, probably housing no more than 5,000 students."

  • Perception, by Princess_Pasta (part 9): "'This is supposed to be, like, infinite universes or something, right? Like that one issue of Ratboy where he gets stuck in this time portal thing but he can't figure out which one is the actual one. Really trippy stuff, man'."

  • Reclamation, by SacredDust (part 8): "'See you later, Mom. Dad,' Tom stood up from the kitchen table. His mother looked slightly concerned. 'Is that all you're going to eat?' 'Sure. I'll be okay until lunch.' 'But you hate the food at Fielding.'"

  • Thanksgiving, by dmsfanman (part 3): "The food was good and so was the wine. While each was getting started on their turkey dinner Tom piped up with, 'So, should we each share a memorable Thanksgiving?'"

  • This Is Man's Work (Hiding in Plain Sight (Alternate LLH, Plot Bunny to Kill)), by Brother Grimace (COMPLETE!): "'Hey - Jake! Big Jake! Tell your sugar momma that she needs to take her hands out of your pants! You're up in two!'"

  • Unnamed story (Scenes No Daria fanfic should have: 600 Years Afterward), by Silver (COMPLETE!): "Reintegration was always the worst part of it, Daria thought. That short eternity, the ever-stretching moment as she brought her powers to bear to force her way out of the superstream and back into mainstream reality."

Thank You, Veterans

Today is not only Veteran's Day but also, fittingly, the anniversary of General George Patton's birth in 1885. Along with Mack, we salute all those who served their country in the armed forces.

Also on this day in 1889, Washington became the 42nd state. It's either the birthplace of grunge or our nation's capital, depending on how much Quinn's been paying attention in class.

You Could Create the Next Folding Coffee Cup!

Mack's concocting something extra special for Inventors' Day, but I'm not sure what it is. It could be a potion to stop Kevin from calling him "Mack Daddy" once and for all, it could be a special blend of chemicals that will end Jodie's constant need to overachieve so she can spend five minutes with him, or it could just be a new formula for Ultra Cola. If you're in the inventing mood, today's the day to try it!

Fanfic Update!
  • Burned Out, by Wrabbit7 (part 7): "As usual, Jennifer was staring out the window instead of paying attention to class, so she was especially taken off guard when Ms. Barch called her name with wicked vehemence."

  • Daria (and other characters) on the Defiant Round Robin, by Meester_Lee (part 46): "Commander Helia slid out of the nap she'd taken and back to full consciousness, her mind replaying the terrible memories she had of that last battle with the replicators and the knowledge that she'd lost and that the Replicators were on their way to the city to exterminate its inhabitants."

  • If Elected, I Will (Not) Serve, by JoeMerl (part 1): "Well, the 2016 presidential election is finally over, and the results are terrible. Please note that I'm writing this before I actually hear them."

  • Reclamation, by SacredDust (part 7): "Tom didn't go to history class that day. What was the point? He knew the subject like the back of his hand, and besides, he couldn't stomach a whole day of Fielding. Speaking of his stomach, he was starving. Don't look at the thermos, Tom, he told himself. Don't even think about it."

  • So this is Real Life, I want my money back, by Kuriamo22 (COMPLETE!): "Daria held a bagel in her mouth while trying to quickly park her Kia Soul into the first open parking spot she could find in this church's parking lot. Though it only took her ten minutes it felt like forever as she was in a bit of a rush."

  • Thanksgiving, by dmsfanman (part 2): "Tom looked out the bedroom window. Thanksgiving morning had dawned a cold and gray day. There were no people visible in the parking lot or the piece of the campus visible from the window."

  • Unnamed story (Iron Chef : MMORPG, Lawndale style), by Waylander (part 20): "Like all the ground-shattering events in Fielding Prep, the fallout between Tom Sloane and his best friends started with a small disagreement. They felt that Tommaso the Half-Elven Adventurer was slowing the trio down."

  • Unnamed story (Iron Chef: The Final Session), by tjdolf (COMPLETE!): "Manson: If you're not going to talk to me, I don't think these sessions serve any purpose. Andrea: (shrugs)"

Hug an Existential Bear

Daria's not too impressed by Hug a Bear Day, but maybe she'd feel better if she had a real bear to hug. As long as it's not a Grizzly...such as Skip or Amelia.

If you're in the mood to dress as a pseudo-intellectual poser with accessories from the street fair, then you can also celebrate the anniversary of Albert Camus's birth on this day in 1913. Daria has shown an interest in existentialism several times throughout the show, including the puppet show she created with Jane and her thoughts on the "nothingness of being" at the dinner table.

It's time to gather some fireworks and light the bonfire for Guy Fawkes Day, better known as Bonfire Night. You could celebrate by playing in a hiphop-punk-electronica band or by visiting Falstaff's Kidney Pies. I don't recommend trying to blow up Parliament, though. That's for tossers.

Fanfic Update!
  • All Hallows' Eve (Pasta's Never-ending Ideas Thread!), by Princess_Pasta (part 1): "'What in the hell are you thinking?' 'Relax, it's Halloween. We can stand to have a little fun'. 'If Mom and Dad-' Elsie Sloane let out an exasperated sigh before turning away from her vanity mirror to level her older brother with a steely glare."

  • Cynic and a Six-String, by fringeperson (part 38): "Fall, the first day back at Lawndale High for the new scholastic year, but you wouldn't know by the mercury readings. It was damn hot out."

  • Friends and More: a story about Mack, by 11tee (part 1): "Michael "Mack" Mackenzie sat at his table staring at the pizza. Only two slices were missing after half an hour. He occasionally looked out the window from his seat. He always sat in this seat- it afforded a good view of the passers-by coming to the Pizzeria."

  • Hiding in Plain Sight, by Roentgen (COMPLETE!): "'C'mon, work those legs! Work 'em! Work 'em!' The crowd of people, at least a dozen of whom were on their first attempt to lose pounds now that New Year's Eve was over and they were already regretting their resolutions."

  • The Many Doctors – Chapter 40, by cfardell_Brenorenz29 (part 1): "It had been many days, possibly a week, since the Doctor and his companions had met the Eleventh incarnation of the Doctor and Clara Oswald at Coal Hill School. '...And we have now left the Ood Sphere. We're on the right track,' the Doctor said."

  • Reclamation, by SacredDust (parts 5 and 6): "Taking classes at Fielding Academy was one thing. Belonging to it was another. Elaine Swinton was interested only in the ones who belonged. The boarders, the participators, those who were fully committed--she was just fine with them, as long as they stayed out of her way." (Part 6)

  • A.R.C Chapter 8 Sighted by a condor, by ST91 (part 1): "That day during the lunch break the topic of discussion was the imminent arrival in the school of two talent scouts from Amazon Models. 'You know, it is in situations like this I regret that we do not have the same classes.' said Jane."

  • Second Chances, by Lady Evil (part 1): "'You can just drop me off here.' Jane told Trent as they came to the shopping center. 'Fine.' sighed Trent, parking his Plymouth. 'Can you get a ride back? I'm gonna be busy all day trying to find a new bassist.'"

  • Stargate Delicately Balanced Daria Chapter Two, by Meester_Lee (part 3): "Daria's reappearance hadn't gone unnoticed at the Hardin residence, even if Cal was on suspension. Cal learned first; he still had friends at Highland High, even after Thursday night."

But How Will She Hear the Phone if the Vacuum's On?

Helen's stepping far, far out of character for Housewife's Day, but she can stick to housecleaning today. Jake's got the cooking covered for Men Make Dinner Day, although I'm not sure anyone is going to be pleased with the results.

Fortunately for the whole Morgendorffer family, it's also Sandwich Day. PBJ can be a good Plan B if they run out of frozen lasagna.

Write a Saintly Novel!

Mack's going the old-fashioned route for National Novel Writing Month, also known as NaNoWriMo. Various members of fandom have participated in this event, and I could see Daria trying it, as well. If nothing else, it's good for overcoming procrastination. As long as she doesn't run into another awful writer's block, of course.

Today is also All Saints' Day, which probably means the "bunch of saint's days" that Cupid can't keep track of all have to share this one. With that kind of treatment, I wouldn't blame them if they blew off Holiday Island to start a band of their own.

Fanfic Update!
  • Daria (and other characters) on the Defiant Round Robin, by EntrancedCat (part 45): "Daria was tired, wasn't she? She had never felt like this before. Of course, who had ever experienced anything like appearing suddenly on a spaceship, no, she corrected herself, a starship that she had thought was a fictional TV setting?"

  • Lucy in the Sky with Daria, by Blake C Stacey (BlakeStacey) (COMPLETE!): "A borrowed space in late summer, between the arboretum soil and the branches of a weeping linden. Two young women. 'Jane, when did we meet? For the first time?'"

  • Mr. and Mrs. Lane (Story idea for adoption: Vincent and Amanda CIA operatives), by Brother Grimace (COMPLETE!): "It was the first time in five years that Vincent and Amanda Lane had made love. Amanda rose from the tiny bed in her husband's sparse apartment, and wrapped a heavy quilt around herself before she sat in a chair next to the dirt-spackled window."

  • A Resentful Cynic ch. 7 Another day, another pain, by ST91 (COMPLETE!): "The next morning did not begin well for Daria. Her face ached, and in general she felt lousy. Things got worse when she came down to breakfast because the screams of surprise/terror that the members of her family uttered perforated her eardrums."

  • Sonoma Coma, by jtranser (part 24): "Daria took another swig of her Ambrosia Mojito and finished her lecture...."

  • Stargate Delicately Balanced Daria Chapter Two, by Meester_Lee (parts 1 and 2): "Helen Morgendorffer awoke with a start, looked at the clock by her side of the bed, and ran into the bathroom to get ready to start her day at the office. She was in the shower when she remembered that it was Sunday morning and her eldest daughter had been returned to her safe and sound." (Part 2)

  • Thanksgiving, by dmsfanman (part 1): "'No Mother, I am not coming home this weekend,' Tom said over his mobile phone."

  • To Be Real, by elainefr (COMPLETE!): "Daria felt the loss of her friend much heavier than she had anticipated and found that she could no longer focus on the words before her; the tears that had threatened in the corners, now spilled over blurring the words as they hit the page."

  • Unnamed story (Crossovers Still Crossing Over), by Wraith (COMPLETE!): "David Sorenson put the business card in his pocket, and then asked Daria, 'What would you do if you were asked to explain "right"?'"

  • Unnamed story (Iron Chef : MMORPG, Lawndale style), by Waylander (part 19): "They met purely by accident. When Darlene was ready to give up leave the circus after the fruitless search, the old Lizardman stuck his head out of the central pavilion."
